Update your contact details

International students are required under Condition 8533 of their student visa to notify Deakin of any change of  residential address within 7 days of arriving in Australia or within 7 days of any change of address.

National Code 2018 requires you to notify Deakin within 7 days of a change to your mobile number, personal email address and emergency contact.

Your details can be updated on StudentConnect. Look under the "personal details" section on the left-hand side and choose 'Update your address'. Find out more on the Update your contact details webpage.

If your contact details in StudentConnect are incorrect, please visit StudentConnect immediately and update your details. Failure to do so will mean that you are in breach of a mandatory visa condition.


If you intend to go home during the holidays, it is important that you change your postal address to your overseas address. When you return to Australia, you will need to update your address again to reflect your Australian address. This is to make sure that any important correspondence sent by Deakin reaches you.
